The Twitter Battlegrounds! #NewQ #QAnon #GreatAwakening

from Neon Revolt:

Ah Twitter, that bastion of free thought and expression:   Isn’t that just lovely? Rep. JJ was right.

But it’s not all bad out there in the twitterverse (at least, for now).

A few of our favorite talking heads have been absolutely killin’ it for the past day or so, in regards to the …

by Jeff Thomas, International Man:

In recent decades, political correctness has been very much on the rise in the countries that were formerly regarded as the “free world.”

It’s important to remind those who live in these countries (North America, Europe, etc.), that political correctness is not by any means as prevalent in the rest of the world. In fact, the further removed a country is from the influence of the EU and US, the less prevalent political correctness is.

The EU and US are, in fact, the epicentre of this movement… This is no accident.

Military and U.S. Law Enforcement Establishing Joint Communication Network for Biometric Databases

by Nicholas West, Activist Post:

Does anyone remember that it used to be considered a conspiracy theory to warn people about biometric databases? Well, now that it is an accepted reality, we should be looking even farther down the slippery slope for new signposts indicating even greater plans to track, trace and database all human beings.

Apparently it is neither sufficient — nor efficient — to have the myriad databases currently at the disposal of agencies like the Department of Defense, FBI or Homeland Security. According to a release from Biometric Update, these agencies currently use different computer languages that have difficulty communicating with each other as seamlessly as the U.S. government desires.

A Three-Way Train Wreck Is About to Derail the Markets

by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:

The U.S. trade war with China and China’s daunting debt problems are well understood by most investors. Coming U.S. sanctions on Iran and Iran’s internal economic problems are also well understood.

What is not understood is how these two bilateral confrontations are intimately linked in a three-way tangle that could throw the global economy into complete turmoil and possibly escalate into war. Untangling and understanding these connections is one of the most important tasks for investors today.

Let’s begin with the China debt bomb. As is apparent from the chart below, China has the largest volume of dollar-denominated debt coming due in the next 15 months.

Vegas security guard admits “no windows were shot out at Mandalay Bay” during attack

by Shepard Ambellas, Intellihub:

A seemingly credible security guard told investigators on Monday that there were no broken windows at Mandalay Bay during the attack, confirming what Intellihub’s Shepard Ambellas reported back in May.

Alead security guard who was working on the strip outside Fat Burger at 3763 S Las Vegas Blvd on the night of the 1 October attack told investigators collaborating with Intellihub on Monday that absolutely no windows were shot out of the Mandalay Bay during Stephen Paddock’s purported 32nd-floor ambush of concertgoers attending the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.

How the American Media Was Destroyed

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

In my September 24 column, “Truth Is Evaporating Before Our Eyes,” https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/09/24/truth-is-evaporating-before-our-eyes/ I used the destruction of the CBS news team that broke the Abu Ghraib story and the story of President George W. Bush’s non-performance of his Texas Air Force National Guard duties to demonstrate how accusations alone could destroy a Peabody Award winning, 26 year veteran producer of CBS News, Mary Mapes, and the established news anchor Dan Rather.

I have many times written that it was President Bill Clinton who destroyed the independent US media when he permitted 90 percent of the US media to be concentrated in six mega-corporations that were in the entertainment and other businesses and not in the news business. This unprecedented concentration of media was against all American tradition and destroyed the reliance that our Founding Fathers placed on a free press to keep government accountable to the people.

Senator: Feinstein Will Be Investigated

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

It’s not just Feinstein that needs investigating. All the Senate Democrats on the Judiciary Committee should be investigated for crimes, and the leaking of a letter by Feinstein is by far the least of things we need to deal with concerning her.

On Saturday, Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said that Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) should be asked under oath whether she leaked the letter to the public that Christine Blasey Ford sent to her. On Sunday, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) said during an interview on CBS’ Face the Nation that Senator Feinstein’s office will be investigated to determine whether it leaked Ford’s letter, and that in addition to an investigation into attorneys that Feinstein recommended to her that told her Senate Judiciary Committee staffers would not travel to California to conduct an interview with her concerning her allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.

Permanent Gold Backwardation- Keith Weiner (01/10/2018)

by Keith Weiner, Sprott Money:

Sometimes, one just needs to look in the right place. And often in those cases, it just takes a conversation to alert one where to look. We had a call with a Swiss company this week, to discuss gold financing for their business. They reminded us that there is a negative interest rate on Swiss francs. And then they said that a swap of francs for gold has a cost. That is, the CHF GOFO rate is negative (the dollar based 12-month MM GOFO ™ is +2.4%).

Let’s review what GOFO means. The London Bullion Market Association described it:

“The rate at which contributors were prepared to lend gold to each other on a swap basis against US dollars.”

Nutritionist says following a healthy diet works better than medications for treating Type 2 diabetes

by Isabelle Z., Natural News:

Receiving a diagnose of diabetes is a life-changing moment. Finding out you have a disease that can impact your quality of life and ultimately shorten it is frightening, and in that moment, no matter how much you normally do your best to avoid medications, you might feel compelled to start taking the diabetes drugs that your doctor recommends. While every case is different, many people have found that dietary changes are enough to keep diabetes under control, particularly when it’s newly diagnosed or you’re in the prediabetic stage.
